I allowed myself to be suckered by those carbon brake rotors about ten or twelve years ago. Truly frightening on any north shore trail. “Same power but more modulation” they said. Then you realize the way the achieved that was with less grip. Reminded me of wet rim brakes but in this case, they never dried and started to work.  Hope Tech X2 brakes were similar. Perfectly suited for XC they said. Between the lines “if xc equals gravel paths in the prairies”.  These are all valuable lessons though. We learn to be sceptical and questioning of claims made by someone trying to sell us something.
